Tracking project will besides helping transport of ore and coal

Goa: The South Western Railway says that the double tracking project will, besides helping transport of ore and coal, also improve tourism potential for Hospet and Goa. The project is expected to provide temporary employment to 1.46 lakh people. “The project will boost economic development and provide gainful employment avenues to Goans,” an SWR official said.As a part of the SWR’s double tracking project, several stations along the Goa stretch of the route will be redeveloped to have more platforms and new station buildings.

The SWR is also considering redeveloping the Chandor railway station, taking into consideration the historic importance of the place, sources said.“All this will have a spill-over effect on the local as well as the state’s economy,” an SWR spokesperson said.While nearly 80% of the double tracking work on the Margao-Sanvordem stretch has been complete, railway sources said it has been planned to complete the Sanvordem-Kalay stretch between June and December 2021.The opposition by the locals along the Margao-Vasco stretch is the only bottleneck in the project.
